I'm looking to use Glade XML with PHP-GTK on Windows 10, the basic stuff works right and I can see the GUI. When I try to process the information on something like the GtkFileChooserButton I get nothing ... basically I'm getting annoyed with the sparse details on GladeXML and data processing with OOP.

Are there any easy to use classes on GTK-PHP (PHP 5.5) that can let me build basic interfaces to load files as input, I had Excel OOXML files in mind to be used with my Excel2JSON class.

    It is curious that you are interested in PHP-GTK. Any particular reason why not using a browser based application and have it handling by PHP on the server side using the built-in Web server?

      basicly I want it to be more of a front end for one of my classes for possible offline usage and direct file access. Something that takes an Excel file as input and outputs images or say a powerpoint doc into a Directory on the Desktop to be printed after review.

      Also windows doesn't have a cool Automator tool like Apple does.

      I'm just doing my research at the moment, seeing if anyone more experienced has any tips of PHP gui's -- it's easier to get basic php-gtk working on windows than Mac :$

      I see. I have not heard much of PHP-GTK development. That is why I thought a solution based on a browser accessing the local server would be more interesting.

      In the previous Lately in JavaScript podcast we commented about the Electron project. That is a project to build desktop applications around Chromium and Node.js. I don't know if it can integrate with PHP, but I think it may be possible.

      You try to create an hta application. These still work in Win10. This is like an html page where you can embed css, images to generate a nice gui. With jscript (IE) you can read the local filesystem, open dialoges for folder selection, execute commands too (because it runs locally).

      basic function to run a command in Jscript

      function RUN(cmdstr)
      	dim OBJ_shell, result
      	set OBJ_shell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
      	' result = OBJ_shell.Run(cmdstr,0,true)
      	on error resume next
      	cmdstr=Replace(cmdstr, "chr(34)", chr(34))
      	result = OBJ_shell.Run(cmdstr)
      	if (result="") then
      		alert "Error: " &vbcrlf& cmdstr
      	end if
      	
      	RUN=result
      end function
      

      I think you can execute local php (if you locate the script and the interpreter is in the PATH).
